Everything Love

So this is love…


“True Love is one of the rarest jewels life will ever bring you, treasure it with all your heart. When you find someone who loves you just as you are, is steadfast during moments of stress, willing to grow with you and allows you to feel however you choose to feel in any moment – there is nothing more you will ever find in a person. You’ve found True Love when you feel fear; fear of vulnerability, fear of abandonment and fear of letting go of your own stubborn egoic patterns that keep the real you separate and safe from the other. Trust in love and go towards your fear, taking this leap of faith in every moment is the journey Love requires for its sweet reward.”

– Jackson Kiddard

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master..”

Whenever this boy comes home it feels like we live in this delicious bubble of laughs, naps, talks, kisses, and more laughs. We have no need for time or schedules, just lots and lots of being together. It really is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

“We laughed and laughed, together and separately, out loud and silently, we were determined to ignore whatever needed to be ignored, to build a new world from nothing if nothing in our world could be salvaged, it was one of the best days of my life, a day during which I lived my life and didn’t think about my life at all.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

You’re good for my soul.…I think I’ll keep you.

A little love story


A year ago today I met a wonderful person who has without a doubt made my life more fun, more giggly, more spontaneous, more goofy (!!!), more adventurous, more meaningful and all around better.

XL foreheads. Meant to be.

A year ago today boy meets girl on the steps outside of a bar (classy).

Girl and boy talk about their love for Frank Lloyd Wright, architecture and other dorky things. (Girl pretends to know more about architecture than she actually does to impress boy. Guess it worked, Booyaaaah.)

Girl thinks boy is interesting (and cute) and decides to ask him out. (Of course, after discussing this with her mother. Mother approves.)

Boy does the actual asking out (duh) and girl says sure!

At my sister’s wedding. My family liked this boy more than me, so I had to keep him.

I like your glasses.

Farm in the fall.

Then girl gets too nervous and cancels but boy is persistent and reschedules.

Boy and girl go on a little dinner date, share their weird stories, and have an all over splendid night.

(Girl still remembers boy showing up in his staple plaid shirt and thinking he is the cutest thing that has ever showed up at her front door.<—Truth.)

Corey’s #1 O!
Skiing trip…aka the trip caitlin almost died.

Then girl and boy decide they are quite fond of one another, spend the rest of the summer together, and as they say, the rest is history!

And they lived happily ever after. (…as long as girl doesn’t kill rosie.)

just because


because I feel especially lovey this week for this one and because I haven’t done one of these omg-i’m-annoyingly-head-over-heels-in-love-with-this-boy post in a while, so it’s long over due!

I like your face.

“oh god it’s wonderful
to get out of bed
and drink too much coffee
and smoke too many cigarettes
and love you so much

-frank o’hara.

This statement is so true. Minus the cigarettes part. (Asthma people, duh!)

Although, I do think smoking looks really cool. Sorry mom.

I fall in love often


“’do you fall in love often?’
yes, often. with a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.”

Currently I’m loving- being outside as much as I can, uptown, the lake, soaking up the sun, my new apartment, Iced Lattes (damn it! there back in my life), exploring new places, and all things associated with summer.

More silly love talk

“I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Damn it Fitzgerald, you do it to me every time.

Remember when I used to blog? Yeah what happened?

I’m in the process of moving so things like blogging don’t exist because really, I don’t have anything exciting to tell you.

Except, I’m going to Chicago on Thursday to see a boy. The boy.

My excitement level on a 1-10 is a 70,000. Umm yeah.

Guess what I do at work? Think about Chicago.

Guess what I do when I’m running? Think about Chicago.

Guess what I do when I’m sleeping? I don’t sleep so I think about Chicago.

Guess what I will do today? Count down the hours until I’m on my flight to Chicago.

Obnoxious? Slightly.

Gosh, being in love is so distracting but really, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
